FRA on Thursday announced in a Federal Register posting withdrawn on crew size on freight and passenger rail

Posted by admin on May 28, 2019

Brothers and Sisters,

I know most of you have heard that the FRA on Thursday announced in a Federal Register posting

they have withdrawn the pending proposed rulemaking on crew size on freight and passenger rail.

This afternoon the BLET State Chairman along with the National Legislative Vice President John

Tolman participated in a conference call to address a better understanding of the “withdrawal” and

current status of state laws regarding crew size.

Several people have contacted me with their concerns with this notice from the FRA. I ask that we

all have patience and that we will have more information in the next following weeks regarding the

“withdrawal” notice.

Wisconsin introduced Assembly Bill 35 (Two Person Crew Law) over 20 years ago which resulted

in Wis. Stat. 192.25 going into law December 15, 1997.

I have attached [Docket No. FRA – 2014 – 0033, Notice No.4] for your review, which is posted and

viewable as public record.
